At Inka's place
-After insisting that I am fine enough, I have Magneton and Inka help me set up an antenna and a laptop to try and sync to PEFE via a topology bridge at the Nidocave's systems-
...Oh? The system is already loading data from a tunnel at the other end...
-While I examine the data, two messengers, a Nidorina and a Linoone, come in-
— <Empress Inka? We have some news...>
(turns around, moves to one side to let me watch) — <Speak.>
— <Well... we have been informed by our...> — leers back at the Linoone — <"police", that four of the six humans that Silent asked us to have been fetched and sent to Goldenrod.>
— ...Four of the six? — try to sit up — What happened to the others?
— <Still in the city... We don't know what is going on with them and we don't have a reliable way to know, either.>
— <The four we got out are already en route to Ecruteak. Once there you should be able to coordinate with them.>
— Well... four is a lot, considering the circumstances.
— <There is also a notice from the Elders... They say Frithvaorah
is OK, and are requesting a mission from him soon...>
(rests his body) — <That's good news, finally!>
— Wait.. Frithvaorah
... Luke? Luke
— <...Er, yeah... He got here yesterday at some point...>
— <He's not the only one though... some other human who understands monese is here too!>
— ...Oh? — I try to stand up — I have to check all this stuff... I have work to do...
(getting nervous) — <Silent No! I said NO!> — tries to restrain me — <You have to rest some more!>
— Inka, stop it! I am giving you an order! You are my- my-
-Inka pushes me against the makeshift bed and rests her arm against my chest-
— <I said no. You can work later if you want.> — to "Dad" — <Hey, come on! Support me here, ?????!>
-"Dad" shrugs and comes in to hold me against the bed-
— Erh.... fine... — drink some water — I can at least until I can go back to check the city...
-The Nidorina and Linoone stare at each other for a moment-
— ...What? What is going on?
— <Er... Silent? It has been decreed...>
"The Nidoran race has left Goldenrod City"
